There have been so many great things going on over the past few weeks--both personally and professionally--that my life's just been an absolute blur. I didn't even have time to post pics from the show stopping Santa Monica Place re-opening! So let's hop into the ol' time machine for a moment and ride back to August 6th...
The weather's been challenging and cold all summer long, but was gorgeous and sunny for the opening

The new Santa Monica Place has much more upscale stores than the old one did--Tiffany's, Louis Vuitton, and Michael Kors just to name a few. It now also boasts a wine bar and observation deck where you can gaze out over the blue Pacific Ocean while you drink and dine.
